This Week @ MHS

Join us tonight, Monday 19 October, at 6 p.m., for a talk and booksigning by Gordon S. Wood, the Alva O. Way Professor of History Emeritus at Brown University. His books include the Pulitzer Prize-winning The Radicalism of the American Revolution, the Bancroft Prize-winning The Creation of the American Republic, 1776-1787, The Americanization of Benjamin Franklin, and The Purpose of the Past: Reflections on the Uses of History.

Wood's talk tonight will be on his new book, Empire of Liberty: A History of the Early Republic, 1789-1815, just published by Oxford University Press. Professor Wood will sign copies of his book following the talk. Refreshments will be served at 5:30 p.m.

And join us on Wednesday, 21 October, at noon, for a brown-bag lunch with Caroline Frank, current MHS short-term research fellow. She'll discuss her current project, "Native American Enslavement in Southern New England, 1630-1730."
